Fiesta Latina: Good Food, Friends and Fun!!!

More than 200 friends and supporters of Casa de Paz came together to celebrate Fiesta Latina on August 5, 2023 at St. Susanna’s Meyer Center in Mason. Guests dined on a delicious meal of chicken fajitas, homemade tamales, beans, rice and cake. They danced to the sounds of our DJ and the amazing entertainment of Cincy Brazil Samba. We shared stories from Casa de Paz and heard testimony from a resident. The support continued with the silent auction of 42 meaningful items and a split the pot raffle. In addition to a great good time, the evening raised $15,000 to benefit the families of Casa de Paz. We are grateful to everyone who made the evening possible:
